At the Buxton Spring Fair, Nestlé Waters in partnership with RECOUP, hosted a stall to raise awareness of the importance of plastic recycling. Visitors were asked to help recycle as many of their used plastic bottles as possible during the day. As a result of this, Nestlé Waters have donated two benches made from recycled plastic which have been installed in Buxton’s Cote Heath park.
